Tim Vapid is an author whose books are seen in Grand Theft Auto V and its multiplayer. Many of his books can be seen around characters' homes and apartments. Unfortunately, his books cannot be read. It is possible that Tim Vapid may be the founder of Vapid Motors, the GTA equivalent of Ford Motors, and therefore he may be a parody of Henry Ford, the founder of Ford Motors. He could also be a parody of Tom Ford, fashion designer and film director. Tim Vapid has clothing boutiques store on Dorset Drive and Rockford Drive in Rockford Hills, Los Santos. This indicates more that he is a parody of Tom Ford.
- His name is, as mentioned before, most likely a parody of Tom Ford, as Vapid is the Ford equivalent in GTA V.
